Essential Guide to the world's rough spots with all necessary information you will need for all your travels that go beyond hanging out on the beach and riding a bus to see some monument or other. Also a great source of background information on conflicts and their causes, the major players and interests and so on... Some problems though: There is the tendency to repeat information given 2 paragraphs above, and then again and again. Also, if you are familiar with RYP's other works (well worth a read), you will notice that some passages seem to have been lifted straight from another book's manuscript and incorporated into this one(or the other way around...). Some statistical data appears downright contradictory to other information in the same chapter, and a proofreader DEFINITELY wouldn't hurt. RYP, if you're reading this, I'll do it for a free copy and some DP gear, OK? Buy it now, you'll never regret it!
